Having already won the 3-match T20I series after winning the first two games, Australia will look to whitewash hosts Sri Lanka on Saturday. The first match saw Australia thrash hammer Sri Lanka by 10 wickets and (36 balls remaining). In the low-scoring second T20I as well, Australia prevailed with a 3-wicket win in 17.5 overs.
A win in the third T20I will help Australia register their second consecutive clean sweep in a T20I series in Sri Lanka. In 2016, Australia whitewashed Sri Lanka 2-0. Australia look too strong a team for Sri Lanka right now and a win for the Aaron Finch-led side in the third match is almost certain.
As we gear up for the third and final T20I, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the SL vs AUS third T20I head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the SL vs AUS head-to-head contest.
The struggling Sri Lanka side scored 18 runs for the loss of two wickets in their last match against Australia. However, they managed to score 50 runs for the loss of one wicket in the series opener. But then again in the 3-match T20I series against India in February their scores at the end of the first six overs was - 18/3, 32/0 and 29/2.
Moreover, Sri Lanka have lost each of their last five T20Is. Against Australia they have managed to win only one out of their last five matches. Their openers Pathum Nissanka and Danushka Gunathilaka are not in good forms either. Nissanka has registered two single digit scores in his last three outings, while Gunathilaka has scored 4, 26 and 0 in his last three outings in the shortest format. Both the batters carry a strike rate close to 120 which is not considered very impressive in T20Is, especially when you are an opener. The fall of early wickets forces the batsmen coming in to tread carefully.
Also, Australia bowlers including the likes of Josh Hazlewood, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson and Ashton Agar are bowling superbly at a very economical rate. In the 2nd T20, Kane Richardson was the only Australia bowler to have an economy rate of more than seven. However, he picked up four wickets in the match after leaking 30 runs in four overs. Considering the entire situation, it's very unlikely that Sri Lanka will score over 43.5 runs in the first overs of their innings in the third T20I.
If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.84 and place your bet on Sri Lanka to score under 43.5 runs in the first six overs from the SL vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
Aaron Finch and Pathum Nissanka are my top two player betting tips for the SL vs AUS 3rd T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Australia captain Aaron Finch scored 24 runs in 13 balls as Australia chased down a 125-run total in 17.5 overs and won the match by three wickets. In the first match, he smashed 61 not out runs off 40 balls and was involved in a 134-run stand with David Warner as Australia won by 10 wickets. With a clean sweep on cards, Finch will look to score big and double his celebration. He was part of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL 2022 where he played five matches to score thrice in single digits and score a fifty.
However, the right-hand batsman is looking to make amends. He has scored 24, 61* and 55 in his last three international T20I innings. The 35-year-old has played 16 T20I matches against Sri Lanka and scored 417 runs at an average of 27.80. In Sri Lanka, Finch has played two T20I and scored 85 runs at an average of 85.00. Overall, the Victoria-born, who led his team to T20 World Cup 2022 triumph, has played 91 matches in the format and scored 2828 runs at an average of 35.32. In front of a very average Sri Lanka bowling unit, Finch should not find it difficult to score more than 23.5 runs in the first T20I.
If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Aaron Finch to score over 23.5 runs from the SL vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
The 24-year-old Sri Lanka opener has scored 3 and 36 in the series so far. Pathum Nissanka has scored 3, 36, 1, 75 and 0 in his last five international T20 innings. The Galle-born has scores of 3, 36, 13, 46, 16, 73 and 36 in the last seven outings against Australia. He averages 28.75 against the T20 champions in eight matches.
Overall, Nissanka has scored 601 runs at an average of 28.61 in 22 matches. The youngster has that talent but lacks consistency. Also, as we mentioned earlier Australia bowlers are in top form and scoring against them will be difficult all over again. Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardsun and Marcus Stoinis have dismissed Nissanka in T20Is in the past and all of them were part of the 2nd T20I and are expected to play in the third as well. Pathum Nissanka is unlikely to score over 19.5 runs against Australia in the third T20I.
If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Pathum Nissanka to score over 19.5 runs from the SL vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
